Los Angeles duo Neil Frances (Jordan Feller and Marc Gilfry) are back with their first new track since their ep, Stay Strong Play Long, was released earlier this year. “It’s Like A Dream” is a daytime disco banger that has already become a crowd favorite at private rooftop parties around LA. The band adds, “This song is about the feeling of yearning for the club. We want our music to soundtrack people’s weekends, and this one was made for that purpose. Like when you get in your car and you need that one song to set it off, we want ‘It’s Like A Dream’ to be that.”

Up next for the duo is a performance at Denver’s Underground Music Showcase Festival this weekend, followed by Outside Lands in San Francisco this October. Putting special emphasis on their enthralling live sets—always performed with a multi-piece band and never relying on playback—the group has developed a reputation as a must-see stage artist. Neil Frances formed in 2016, having both relocated to LA in pursuit of new projects. With Gilfry’s inherent knack for hooks and melodies and Feller’s encyclopedic sonic recall ability and vast knowledge of production, the pair hit it off and began to develop their brand of beat-driven pop earworms infused with a more organic warmth than most modern electronic dance music. Their 2018 debut EP, Took A While, with its blend of psychedelic rhythms, vibe-y, infectious grooves, and raw, funky spirit put Neil Frances firmly on the map and propelled them to tour slots with Jungle and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Their latest EP garnered praise from Under The Radar, KCRW, Magnetic, Collide, Indie Shuffle, and more.
